Kill Windows : Forcing Blue Screen Of Death



Why would you want to force your computer to display a Blue Screen of Death?

If Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn’t work (known to geeks the world over as the three-finger salute), then a forced BSOD is your last resort. It’s kind of like pulling the plug, but slightly less harsh and much more likely to impress your nerd friends.

Steps :

  1. Open the Registry Editor. ( Start >> Run >> type "regedit" >> Press Enter )
  2. Naviaget to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Services, then i8042prt, then Parameters (for the geeks, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters).
  3. Click Edit -> New -> DWORD Value or DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. Call the new value (without the quotes) "CrashOnCtrlScroll".
  5. Change the value to 1 (0x00000001)
  6. Close the Registry Editor and restart your computer.
  7. Hold down the right Control key then press the Scroll Lock key twice, then a blue screen should pop up.
An alternate way to make Vista crash would be to simply use Windows Vista. :P
